These symptoms are pretty well known and documented medically in relation with thyroid function.Endocrine glands like thyroid surely play role in fright and fight that is stress situations.Hormones can also control your emotions or type of body's response to emotions.

So the thyroid medications are proving helpful in your case.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
